This chapter reflects on themes developed in Comparative Criminology in Asia. It considers the practical and political character of asking comparative questions, and the theoretical traditions that inform comparative research. The chapter also summarizes a study by Setsuo Miyawaza that examines the reception of Asian research in mainstream Western criminology journals. This indicates that research about relatively few Asian countries, particularly China, reaches an audience in Western countries. The chapter ends with some optimistic thoughts on how Asian criminology might develop theories that recognize and address distinctive values, institutions, and practices in Asian countries.
